Welcome back to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is the place to highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week. Whether it’s something funny, startling, gut-wrenching, or just really beautifully written, Thursday Quotables is where my favorite lines of the week will be, and you’re invited to join in!
NEW! Thursday Quotables is now using a Linky tool! Be sure to add your link if you have a Thursday Quotables post to share.
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
I just love this series of girls-in-sports YA novels by Miranda Kenneally! The characters are so real and honest… and occasionally awkward:
“It’s a beautiful night…” Ty says.
“Yup. I love fall…”
“Me too. It’s my favorite season…”
“Mine too…” I eat another cookie.
Do we have anything to talk about?
When we’re hooking up, it seems like we have lots to talk about, but maybe that’s because we’re too busy kissing. This lack of conversation, this isn’t what love is supposed to be like, right? But what happens when you don’t find that right person? Do you just spend the rest of your life in a relationship where the conversation isn’t great, everything isn’t perfect, but it is nice and sweet?
What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!
